and park and denny. and other folks from rec & park as well. i want to thank all of those involved over the last two years. to give you background, i have talked about this a lot publicly. for me the impetus came up when first in office. and my children were learning to ride there, with the training wheels off of their bikes, and we lived close to roosevelt and thought that would be a great place to learn. we went over there on a saturday morning, and very frustrated by the fact that the schoolyard was closed and locked up. huge black top, although asphalt great place for families on the weekends. and came back to city hall and talked to the head of public schools, and rec and park and hydra. and i said, if we could open up the schoolyards on the weekend, and it was closed because of the budget cuts. i know that growing up here in san francisco, i grew up playing ball in the neighborhood in the local schoolyard. and if kids and families are not given that opportunity. i think it's a real shame. we have embarked on a project and have had fund-raisers over the last years, that have been v

think, and denny you correct me on this, we had two incidences. one was a broken umbrella stand and sand toys were taken. we had this pilot out there for a while. but with no funding. and every city department actually carried the budget within their own budget. so -- and the principals that had participated had a really good experience with it. so it was easier for us to go out and say, now we have funding behind it. and what i said to mark initially, we have to have incenti incentive. the principals most reluctant were worried about what would happen to their site. how they make it so they don't have to worry coming monday. we worked hard to eliminate all of those worries. and i think that the incentive piece was helpful. the principals felt like they were getting monetary value to this. we were going on take care of all the cleaning and checking of the sites. opening and closing. i think that eve is the only one that keeps or site open. we don't open her site. but everything else was really about trying to make it arizona -- make it easy as possible. and you know me, it's about wantin

ocean edge. sfoceanedge.org and i have comments, unlike dennis, i don't think you will like them, but what the heck. we understand that funding is a continuing problem for the department and the department is now invashon island in two legal actions the appeal to the california coastal commission and the ceqa lawsuit in superior court over the beach chalet fields. if the department would consider the hybrid alternative for the fields it would save a great deal of money for the department. i don't know how much you paying the city attorney, but i think we can all agree this would be money better spent on trees, not on paper for legal briefs. that having been said, i do support increased general funding for the rec and park department and have i signed a letter to the mayor to that regard and i hope we can all work together for this. thank you. x thank you. >> anyone else wishing to make public comment? being none, public comment is closed of the commissioners. >> we need a mosto approve the budget to send it on to the mayor for katie and phil to negotiate a great deal. >> is mo

on consent items. i have one speaker signed up. president dennis kelly of united educators would like to speak to item b 5. >> thank you very much. it's a pleasure to be at the same microphone where your honored all the national board certified teachers and again, just more congratulations to them for all their work. item 2 e is your positive certification for your finances. there's a line that talks about your positive certification going into the future because you're going to be able to maintain reductions. we are curious about those reductions that you see. we are very pleased that there's the positive certification and that we expect the positive certification now with the passage of prop 30 to continue out for at least the next several years. it means to me that we probably don't need to have things like lay offs, probably don't need to have things like furlough days. and with any luck, we'll be able to get away from the hideousness of the kind of non reelections that people go through. and let me just mention for a moment why non reelections are so harmful and hurtful to

as well. i wanted to thank dennis kelly from the teachers union and linda plaque who i believe are here that stand behind our math teachers in the school district as well. she also helped to organize the expanding your horizons conference which is an outreach program designed to meet the potential needs of young female students in career field, predominantly performed by men through hands on experience. she creates programs. she shows through example and she nurtures and supports her students. overall her work has boosted the confidence, nurtured and actively supported young women in academics and to be a productive force and a better future for many. i'll lastly conclude by saying there is a digital divide that really plagues many low-income communities. there is also a gender divide as well in math and sciences and we need our champions like gail [speaker not understood] to continue their work. and i just wanted to honor you for your over 40 years at washington high school. so, thank you so much and can we have a hand for ms. barrett. thank you.

, this ethics commission has an ethical duty, to notify dennis that he must rewrite his good government guide. that uses the analogous city-owned dumpster that the city employees don't have to go climbing into to find deleted records. that is ridiculous. under 340.90. >> gong never said at the outset that the records had been deleted they never told mr. wooding that his records had been deleted that did not come up until right at the end of the sotf process that he was finally told that they were, in fact, deleted. and had he been told that earlier he could have asked earlier that back up tapes be searched. mr. saint crox's to dismiss, that is hue in fact what miss gong should have done is referred mr. wooding to the department of technology and information services which is a city agency which must bypass mr. saint croix's awareness. >> she should have referred george to dtis, the second thing... >> mr. >> that she did not do... >> thank you, your three minutes is up. >> the private public partnership that she had an obligation. >> the private entities >> we have a lot of speakers today. >>

above it and someone had been using tools to carve a trail all the way up to the hill. dennis kern told us "we agree with you. this trail needs to be removed from our park land". rec and park crews tried a couple of times to discourage the use of trails and cutting tree lumps and on the trail and it got worse. debris was scattered and homeless were there and we reported the mess to the new manager and we was helpful and finally came word for a meeting for park users and indeed a statement from rec and park management. without a formal transparent process "i am looking forward to a open and community wide discussion how we can improve the trail" and why have a meeting if rec and park is opposed to our position. and that's what we recommend to you. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> [calling speaker names] if you could come up please. gene. >> gene. >> i'm little hard of hearing. >> and could you speak into the mic. >> oh okay. i am jean calling and a member of beacon street for 30 years or more. i oppose -- i am on the record of opposing any development of that unauth
